First published in 1997 by author J. K. Rowling, the Harry Potter book series has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon selling over 450 million copies in more than 73 languages and spurring one of the most popular film series in history. While many view the Harry Potter novels as children's literature, there are also many mature underlying themes that merit a deeper textual reading. As part of course LIT 3301 Cultural Studies and Pop Arts, students will join Dr. Ann Basso in studying the Harry Potter novels from an academic standpoint while visiting some of the real-life sites in London and Scotland that inspired the novels or were featured in the film series. Join us this summer and take the magic out of the page and into reality!

The UK, like other foreign governments, has taken actions to guard against terrorist attacks of this nature, including arrests of suspected extremists allegedly involved in terrorist plots.

All European countries remain potentially vulnerable to attacks from transnational terrorist organizations.
